EDITORS’ NOTES

The title track to Reverend Horton Heat’s 2004 album Revival is one of the band’s all-time great songs. There's nothing gimmicky about it; it's simply a revved-up blues construction, delivered with unforced intensity and tinged with just a hint of genuine poignancy. The Rev had come a long way since their early years. They could still get antsy and silly—just check “Octopus Mode” or “I’m Your Pet Rock”—but increasingly, the truest moments were ones of vulnerability. The exhaust of “Goin’ Back Home” only makes the soft touch of “Someone in Heaven” and “We Belong Forever” even sweeter.

The Rev continues to keep it real, real rockabilly! A+

This band is my favorite band by far! album after album, this killer 3 piece rockabilly band amazes me with their musical talents, the rev on guitar is the most under-rated most killer guitarist that has the best voice i have ever heard while ripping up the guitar, the drummer perfects every style of beat, while the stand up bass player jimbo is the best bassist i have seen and heard! this band has a ton of energy, and the lyrics are so great, they are something every red blooded american whiteboy greaser can relate to. thee perfect album for out in the garage wrenchin' on that ol' rat rod or harley! buy this album and all their others. know what it is really like to rock and roll!
